Calculate the required force to bend a piece of sheet metal using the wipe bending method.

In this process, the sheet is held between a wipe die and clamp pad, while a punch presses against the edge of the sheet.

The calculated tonnage canbe used for the selection of a machine, such as a press brake, to perform the bending operation.

The factor of safety is in most cases will be 1.

We also have Air Bending Force, Bend Allowance, Deep Drawing Force and Springback Calculators.

Enter your Sheet thickness, Length, Die radius and Punch Radius then select your material type and finally enter a safety factor, units can be selected as required.
